Graduation Participation Guidelines


We are pleased to announce that UTC will hold Fall 2020 Commencement ceremonies on the below days and times. For undergraduate candidates, you must RSVP to reserve your space at the ceremony in which you would like to participate. For graduate candidates, you must also RSVP to reserve your space at the Graduate School ceremony on November 18th if you wish to attend. All graduates should complete their RSVP by November 5th.


Wednesday, November 18 at 3:00pm FOR GRADUATE SCHOOL CANDIDATES ONLY

Thursday, November 19 at 3:00pm

Friday, November 20 at 3:00pm

Saturday, November 21 at 11:00am

Saturday, November 21 at 3:00pm


All ceremonies will take place on Chamberlain Field, and all ceremony times are in Eastern Time Zone. In the event of inclement weather, the alternate location and details will be communicated to you via email, social media, and UTC’s website.


In an effort to follow COVID-19 protocol, no guests will be permitted to attend any ceremony. All ceremonies will be live streamed so family and friends can watch from the comfort of home.


Prior to coming on campus for your ceremony, you should complete UTC’s COVID-19 student self-check screening available here. Throughout all ceremonies, masks and social distancing will be required.


You are welcome to wear your cap and gown to your ceremony but may instead wear business professional attire (what you would wear to a job interview) if you prefer.


Further graduation information can be found here.


Remember, the RSVP deadline to participate in a ceremony is November 5th.


Congratulations on your hard work, achievements, and upcoming graduation!



To comply with social distancing requirements and ensure the safety of graduates, the request to walk to participate in a ceremony other than the time in which you will graduate, is currently unavailable.
